Santo Domingo.- The taped phone conversations in which retired general Rafael Percival presumably alerts his son to "move" because he was "located" occurred a month apart; the first on November 1 and the other, on December 3, from the same number.
Journalist and TV producer Huchi Lora made the revelation after analyzing the audios in which Percival purportedly talks to the mechanic Jaime Antonio Girón, who asks him to urged the "doctor," his late son, John Percival, to "leave where he is and move."
Lora said the calls were made from an international number, and both Percival's and the mechanic's phones were recorded on bench warrants. "If John Percival Matos had been persuaded to surrender with the first phone call, he would be alive and not dead today."
Percival Matos was killed last week in a shootout with Police at a motel on the Duarte highway near Bonao (central). He was wanted since last September in connection with three armored truck robberies. His alleged accomplice Brayan Peter Félix was arrested Tuesday night.
